Description

The purpose of this report is to give an overview of the characteristics of the coastal environment in areas where
marine aggregate dredging takes place, or is likely to occur in the future. We then highlight how the results of
major investment in research carried out in the UK over the past decade, particularly through the Aggregate Levy
Sustainability Fund (ALSF), have assisted in our understanding of the nature and scale of impacts of dredging on
the marine environment, and how this information has been used to improve the sustainable management of
this key resource for the UK economy.
